It’s time for another installment of my favorite random “lately-loves.” Here are some of the things I’ve been enjoying lately, that are too good to keep to myself…
1. siggi’s Icelandic style skyr (strained non-fat yogurt)
Say hello to my latest snack obsession. I discovered siggi’s at my local Henry’s and was intrigued by the perfect packaging. Looking closer, I was sold after scoping their unique flavors and impressive nutrition facts: no sugar (they use agave nectar instead), 120 cals, 17g of protein per cup!!! But as we all know… the proof is in the skyr. LOL And it is diiiiiivine. I highly recommend the pomegranate and passion fruit, grapefruit and vanilla flavors. I also have read (but have not confirmed) that skyr is great for smoothies. Can’t wait to try them all!!
I know I’m a week late on the obsession-train, but WOW. I cannot get enough of the incredible pale lilac confection that Cate wore to the Oscars!! I love absolutely everything about it, from the barnacle-like beading to the structured shoulders, to the delicate pleating to the pop of yellow. Stunning and something I would wear in a heartbeat. I was fairly bored by everything else the stars wore that night… but this dress, I can’t get out of my head!
3. essie nail polish in “turquoise and caicos”
I think the best gifts are the ones you wish you could keep when you give them away. When I was wrapping up my Christmas shopping for Anna, I was on the hunt for a couple of nail polishes as “stocking stuffers.” This cool turquoise was one that I snagged for her, and secretly wanted for myself! I borrowed it this weekend and immediately fell in love with the playful, tropical color.
I have been LOVING my Vivite skincare products! I was introduced to them by my sister-in-law Megan (who happens to own an awesome med spa in Pasadena — Elude!), as the products are made by Allergan…the same company that makes Botox and Latisse! Everything is medical grade and full of powerful glycolic acid. I can honestly say I’ve seen a difference in my skin in the couple of months I’ve been using the products. I especially love the revitalizing eye cream and night renewal facial cream, while Meg raves about the vibrance therapy serum.
5. nars lip gloss in “easy lover”
I’m always carrying around 2-3 lipglosses and this one hasn’t left my purse in months. This hot pink gloss goes on fairly sheer and has great staying power. Love it alone or layered over a peachy lipstick (like YSL Rouge Volupté #30).
6. ra ra riot – “the orchard”
An album I still can’t get enough of… I am all about a rock band with prominent violin and cello! My favorite songs are “Foolish,” “Keep It Quiet” and “Shadowcasting”… but I really don’t think there’s a bad song in the mix.
And as a bonus, here are some other albums currently in my CD changer…
I hope you all had a terrific first week of March! I am looking forward to a very special celebration this weekend, and will share all about it next week. As always, please let me know if there is something you’ve been loving lately… I love reading about your fab finds, too!!
